White Inside Lower Eyelids
I have a white bump inside my lower eyelid, and the area about an inch below the eye is swollen, looks like a fluid filled bag...now I have two white?
I've always had puffy lower eyelids in the morning, but now my upper eyelids get puffy too. Is this normal?
Maybe: Puffiness of the lower and upper lids can result from fluid retention, sometimes worse in the morning due to lying horizontally while sleeping. When you stand up, gravity pulls the fluid down. The most common cause of "puffy" lower lids is fat prolapsing forward mimicking swelling. The upper lid skin can stretch and become redundant with age appearing swollen. ...Read more

Oculoplastic eval.: Lower eyelid swelling, bags or "thickening" can be caused by several things. You should see an oculoplastic eye surgeon for evaluation. They may recommend warm compresses and cleaning your lids and lashes with baby shampoo to treat blepharitis or surgery to remove excess fat from the lower lids. They may also perform tests to rule out other causes of lower eyelid swelling. ...Read more
This way from birth?: People usually don't have perfectly symmetrical faces, so one eyelid can be lower than the other. If a person always had one eyelid lower, from birth or childhood, that is likely normal for him. However, if an eyelid goes lower later in life, there may be a problem with the muscles of the eyelid, the nerves controlling the eyelid, or the lid itself. An ophthalmologist (eye M.D.) can figure it out. ...Read more
Many causes: Conciderring your young age, the droop of the lower eyelid could be related to a systemic problem like thyroid dysfunction or a genetic disposition. I suggest to have an exam by your ophthalmologist to determine the cause and rule out systemic or more serious problems. ...Read more
Probably Stye: If this occurred rather suddenly, it probably is a stye, which is a blocked oil gland of the eyelid. It can become secondarily infected and can spread to adjacent tissues leading to cellulitis. Most of these styes respond to very warm compresses 3-4 times/day for 10' followed by gentle massage with a washcloth containing a small amount of baby shampoo. After a week, the stye should nearly resolve. ...Read more
Ptosis: Eyelid drooping, which is also called ptosis, may occur due to trauma, age, or various medical disorders. This condition can affect one or both eyes, it may come and go, or it might be permanent. Depending on the severity of the condition, drooping eyelids can block vision. In most cases, however, the condition is treatable, often through surgery. See an Ophthalmologist for an evaluation. ...Read more

Eye senstivity: Before treating the wrinkles I would do patch testing to see if I could find the cause of the skin ' sensitivity'. I may be a contact dermatitis.
